UFC 144 Coverage | Mark Hunt Believes He Is Better Than Kongo In The Striking Realm
“I know (of) Cheick Kongo — he’s alright, he’s not a bad fighter … As a striker I’m better than him, of course. That’s the way I look at it. That’s (attempting takedowns) what he’s gonna be doing. Once he realizes he can’t dance around or play around with me he’s going to be trying to take me down like the rest of them.”
Cheick Kongo has made a name for himself in the UFC’s heavyweight division by using his knockout power punches to dazzle fans for many years.
In his next outing however he will absolutely need to rely on a more-well-rounded skillset.
As Mark Hunt points out he is the more credentialed “striker”. For those who do not know, he is one of a rare breed of MMA fighters to capture a K-1 grand prix championship. Check out his fan page for more info on his credentials Here.
